But what happens when turning over a new leaf isnt enough to sustain roots and branches? In August, a total solar eclipse blazes its trail across Americas heartland, affecting us all. As it arrives, the sun, already powerful in its own sign of Leo, enjoys a harmonious link with the great change-maker, Uranus. Its a chance to banish fear, and embrace the opportunity for rebirth and renewal. It brings a message of transformation, and its just begging to be explored. When distractions come along theyre often more appealing than long-standing duties. We know we should finish what weve started, but its hard to stay focused. Life puts up so many barricades, diversions and temptations that it seems as if were being tempted to take a different path. Or, at least, thats what we tell ourselves. You face such a distraction. Though its extremely tempting, its important to adhere to an existing emotional commitment. Try to stay focused on your plan. Your future lies down this path. Discover why August has so many opportunities. Call 1902 222 500. ARIES MAR 21APR 20 When we watch a film, or read a book, the main character seems to know instinctively how to do the right thing. Its as if theyre built with an internal radar, that directs them, as they move with ease and grace towards the apparently obvious conclusion, while scarcely batting an eyelid. The situation youre struggling with is sensitive. Its worth standing back, and giving yourself a chance to think about the best way to proceed. Though there may be twists and turns along the way, theres a happy ending in sight. Your in-depth forecast for the whole of August can really help. Call 1902 222 500. GEMINI MAY 22JUN 22 In literature and history, love and tragedy go hand in hand. One follows the other. Romeo and Juliet, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. Such famous love stories teach us about love. But what kind of story do they teach us? That a relationship must be tragic or turbulent to be great? Thats neither a true nor healthy expectation to hang on to. You may be in danger of romanticising a situation that could do with a more realistic approach. Theres no need to lose sight of yourself in your search for love. Inspiring times await you in August. Call your new forecast: 1902 222 500. SCORPIO OCT 24NOV 22 Excuse me, are you Winnie-The-Pooh? No? Forgive my confusion. Its just that your words are so dripping in honey, that I thought youd stepped out of Hundred Acre Wood. But its not A.A. Milne you have to thank for the sweetness of your nothings. Mercury and Venus changing signs helps make your communications delightful, to even the most discerning of palates. And they bring you an opportunity too. When your powers of persuasion are so enhanced, what better time is there to establish a place in someones heart? There is inspiring news in your in-depth August forecast. Call 1902 222 500. TAURUS APR 21 MAY 21 Years ago, when I told a friend that I was going to get married, he reacted with disappointment. He thinks weddings are bourgeois arrangements. But to me, marriage connects with an ancient, even tribal practice. To stand before family and friends, while making a public commitment to someone enhances your perspective on the relationship. Dont worry! Im not suggesting you immediately rush down the aisle! But dont shy away from your feelings. Show the world how much you have to give. Four minutes on the phone can make August special. Call 1902 222 500. LIBRA SEP 24OCT 23 Are you, like so many other people, searching for your soulmate? I ask only because it seems as if youre worried that a relationship doesnt feel right. Youve made a decision, and have taken a leap of faith. Now, youre out on a limb its not surprising that you feel unsure of your footing. But, the choice between distancing yourself from a situation, or drawing closer, is in your hands. Your courage and effort deserve recognition. The cosmos suggests that youll receive it but not in the way you expect. Be ready for the magic on offer to you in August. Call 1902 222 500. SAGITTARIUS NOV 23DEC 21 We come into this world in a state of total innocence, believing in kindness and generosity as a basic rite. Cruelty, unkindness and injustice are beyond comprehension. Then, gradually, cynicism begins to set in. Before long we start to expect the worst rather than the best. We question the motives behind apparent selfless good deeds. But this week, as Venus enters your sign, you can abandon your cynicism. If youre open and generous with those closest to you, those you love will return your kindness tenfold. August is a powerful month for you. Call 1902 222 500. CANCER JUN 23JUL 23 The art of compromise is a fine art that we all practise especially when it comes to matters of the heart. We go the extra mile for the people closest to us. We want to accommodate their wishes, grant them all that we have the power to do, because we want to make them happy. Having said that, we know if were being taken for granted. If youre tired of fulfilling someones expectations, its worth remembering that we can all be guilty of taking things for granted. All you need to do is to be honest. August brings great potential for change. Call 1902 222 500. VIRGO AUG 24SEP 23 We can know someone almost as well as we know ourselves, or even better. Yet knowing that person as well as we do, its still possible for us to discover something new. People change; its what makes them exciting. People in a relationship either grow apart or closer. Its time to be attentive to someone you care about as they reach a turning point. If the dynamic of your relationship shifts theres no need to worry. You can adapt to a new paradigm. And a supportive attitude will narrow any gaps. Dont miss your inspiring in-depth forecast for August. Call 1902 222 500. AQUARIUS JAN 21FEB 19 Were told that seeing is believing. But, the opposite is also true because when we have faith in something, its easy to find evidence of that particular truth all around us. The prism of belief through which we view reality is self-affirming by nature. Periods of uncertainty are a necessary and normal part of life too. Youre being put into a position where you need to re-evaluate your position in a relationship. If you allow yourself the time you need, youll know what you want to put your faith in. In August, the power of the planets can change your life. Call 1902 222 500. LEO JUL 24AUG 23 As Venus enters your opposite sign, the chances are that you have a secret admirer. Just because you might not reciprocate their affection, or even have noticed them hiding in the wings, doesnt mean that they dont exist. And thats a lovely thing. Even people in committed relationships deserve the admiration they draw from others. It neednt be taboo or threatening, you should feel flattered that people appreciate your glow and energy. Theyre right to admire you. Enjoy being in the spotlight. August brings a rare cosmic opportunity for change. Call 1902 222 500. CAPRICORN DEC 22JAN 20 If you keep house plants, youll know that some, like hardy ferns, are easy to care for, while others, like orchids, should be accepted as gifts only after researching how to look after them. Relationships are similar. Some of your attachments survive the harshest of conditions, and others demand constant care. The healthiest liaison isnt always proportional to the effort you put into it. But a weakened connection will benefit from attention. Make a sincere gesture now and a relationship will blossom. Your in-depth forecast for August is ready. Call 1902 222 500.
